Subject The Tomcat(5.0.16) service does not start on Windows XP
Date Wed, 21 Jan 2004 12:55:54 GMT
Hi 
 I'm having a tough time here trying to figure out why the Windows
Service for Tomcat wont start. This is what I have done:
 
1) I've downloaded Tomcat 5.0.16, and unzipped the files into a
directory, (E:\tomcat_test\).
 
2) I have also installed the service according to the link:
http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/daemon/procrun.html#Installing%20the%2
0service
<http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/daemon/procrun.html#Installing%20the%
20service> 
I.e. with the following arguments
E:\tomcat_test\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.16>.\bin\tomcat //IS//Tomcat5
--DisplayName "Tomcat 5.0.12" --Description "Tomcat 5.0.12 JDK 1.4
http://jakarta.apache.org" --ImagePath  E:\tomcat_test\jakarta-tomcat
-5.0.16\bin\bootstrap.jar" --StartupClass
org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap;main;start --ShutdownClass
org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap;main;stop  --Java
C:\j2sdk1.4.2\jre\bin\client\jvm.dll --StdOutputFile e:\log.txt
--StdErrorFile e:\err.txt --WorkingPath
e:\tomcat_test\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.16\
 
3) Launched Windows Services tool, and started it from there, but then
it seems to start and then it exists
 
4) As an alternative I started it from the command line by using the
command:
            E:\tomcat_test\jakarta-tomcat -5.0.16>.\bin\tomcatw
//GT//Tomcat5
Now this works, cause the process comes up and I am able to browse the
http://localhost:8080 <http://localhost:8080/>  page with no trouble
 
5) And then I started it by using the command:
            e:\temp>\tomcat_test\jakarta-tomcat -5.0.16\bin\tomcatw
//GT//Tomcat5
Now this does NOT work
 
I've been using both regmon and filemon to try and figure out what is
happening. 
 
And this is my conclusion without a solution :-(
 
So when I am running it from the command line, from the working
directory it works fine. From the tools filemon and regmon I could see
important differences between when it worked and when it did NOT work.
The differences seems to be that the service is very dependent on the
actual working directory, cause when it did not work it failed to find
the entries below, whereas when it worked fine it used the proper path
to these, 
 
NOT WORKING
C:\Windows\system32\conf\catalina.properties
C:\Windows\system32\common\classes
C:\Windows\system32\common\endorsed
C:\Windows\system32\common\lib
 
WORKING
E:\tomcat_test\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.16\catalina.properties
E:\tomcat_test\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.16\common\classes
E:\tomcat_test\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.16\common\endorsed
E:\tomcat_test\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.16\common\lib
 
Any ideas, what is going wrong here?
 
Regards
 Tobias
